Keep Those Ghosts Away

Julia Ross

Itís not because you were gone that Iím leaving
Itís because you were here that I stayed
When I said you were wrong, I was lying
Itís the voice in my head thatís to blame

(pre)
And this is what wakes me up in the middle of the night

(chorus)
Everybody's got their reasons
Hundred thousand demons
Tryin' to keep those ghosts away

If your headís above the water
Pain will make you stronger
Trying to keep those ghosts away

Here we areÖ Under the stars
Trying to find the meaning of it all

Everybody's got their reasons
Hundred thousand demons
Tryin' to keep those ghosts away

Something broke in my head, and Iím bleeding
I didnít follow the signs, now Iím lost
And when Iím haunted at night, am I dreaming
If the sun doesnít rise can I call
And will you answer me at all

(pre)
And this is what wakes me up
In the middle of the night

Chorus

(bridge)
My urge to leave when I should stay
My tendency to push until it breaks
Your drunken truth keeps me awake
The morning after every word erased
Every word erased
Every word erased
Every wordÖ every word
Every word

Chorus
